Budgeting for School Snack and Breakfast Programs
When estimating how much funding is needed to operate your school snack or breakfast program, consider the following:
Number of students expected to attend the program, on average, each day;
Number of days the program will run per school year; and
Estimated cost to serve a snack per student, per day is $1.25; for breakfast, $1.75; your costs could be lower
How much will you need to fundraise per year to cover your costs?
How can you better budget your spending and/or fundraise more effectively?
Always keep your finances specific to your breakfast and snack programs in a separate ledger for easier tracking and required reporting.
